Twenty new cases of coronavirus have been reported in north Wales, health chiefs have confirmed.

Public Health Wales has announced that 105 new covid-19 cases have been reported across Wales, bringing the total number of cases to 11,573.

Of the new cases, there were seven reported in Conwy, five in Gwynedd, four in Denbighshire, two in Wrexham, one in Flintshire and one on Anglesey. The total number of cases across north Wales is now 1,777.

Public Health Wales has also confirmed that there have now been 174 deaths across the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board area. Across Wales, a total of 1,132 people have died.

Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “The Welsh Government announced on Friday (May 8) that lockdown arrangements will continue in Wales for a further three weeks, with minor adjustments so people can exercise more often, and to allow garden centres to open if they can comply with social distancing.

“Please note that changes announced by the UK Prime Minister on Sunday were for England only, and that in Wales stay-at-home guidance remains that, wherever you can, you should stay at home.

“Although we appear to have passed the peak of new cases in Wales, Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still circulating in every part of the country.

"The single most important action we can all take in fighting the virus is to stay at home, and we thank each and every person across Wales for doing their bit to help slow the spread of the virus.

“We are currently working with Welsh Government to determine the best approach for when the lockdown is eventually eased, including increasing our testing capacity."
